Your new organisation
Guildford Borough Council have been continuing to deliver outstanding service to the community and during the recent challenges have continued to do so without any compromise. During the last few months, the Council has made some changes in the way they work and operate, to maintain their service levels and increase productivity while doing so. Guildford is undergoing some major changes with regeneration and redevelopment which makes it an exciting and interesting time to join.

Your new role
This is a newly created position for the Council and will report directly into the lead specialist for Accounts Payable and Accounts Receivable. You will be responsible for processing payments and dealing with supplier queries and issues. This will include matching purchase order numbers to invoices, reconciliation of payments and producing some financial reports (overheads, sundry debts and budgetary).

What you'll need to succeed
Ideally you will have experience of working in a similar role previously and experience of having done this within a council will be beneficial. Must be confident with accounting packages (business world is desirable) along with having organisational skills as you will have to deal with multiple tasks. If you have been involved with process improvement around invoicing, escalation points and service level agreements (SLA), this will also be advantageous.
